In Full Swing: The Perth Fringe World Festival

February 6, 2019
October 3, 2022

Western Australia’s most eagerly anticipated event of the year has finally arrived... Right now, Perth is playing host to a flood of comedians, circus performers, musicians and many other artists.

That’s because Fringe World – the third largest Fringe festival on earth, with over 700 shows spanning 130 venues all over Perth – is now in full swing.

Kicking off on 18th January 2019 and running until 17th February, Fringe World brings a month of constant excitement to Perth, with the epicentre of the festivity at the Woodside Pleasure Garden in Northbridge.

In 2018, the eclectic mix of artistic performances and shows saw an attendance of nearly 1 million people. It’s no surprise, then, that demand for Airbnb accommodation in Perth soared during the festival last year.  

February 2018 had the highest Airbnb occupancy rate of any month last year (92%), and it’s clear that 2019 will be no different.  

With such a huge surge of people travelling to Perth each year, this is an ideal time to open up your home to those coming in search of a Summer they won’t forget. Listing your home on Airbnb is a clever way to make the most of this busy time of year - and earn a good bit of extra cash!
